  1. 16 th March 2014 Achieved its fourth feature in the group Shelters

This roofless abandoned house is in a field below Slieve Binnian in the Mourne mountains, in County Down. At 747m Slieve Binnian is the third highest mountain in N. Ireland.

The house was built of granite – the local stone.

We were passing on our way to climb Slieve Binnian. The footpath is just the other side of the dry-stone wall at the edge of the field. Unfortunately by the time we got to the top the glorious blue sky had given way to different quite weather conditions

I couldn’t resist photographing this house on the way past. I also shot a panorama from this spot which I will upload later.

                    Imagine there’s no Heaven
                    It’s easy if you try
                    No hell below us
                    Above us only sky
                    Imagine all the people
                    Living for today

The title of this image was altered (from just “Above us Only Sky” ) and the above verse added for the sake of the Sing it to Me challenge. The house image was placed in the top-ten in the challenge.
